There have been a few Canadians ranked in the top 10 in recent years – Milos Raonic and Genie Bouchard in singles, and Daniel Nestor and Vasek Pospisil in men’s doubles.
All have been absent from that rarefied air for a while.
But the most-overlooked Canadian player – a two-time mixed doubles Grand Slam champion in the last nine months – will jump into the top 10 for the first time Monday.
With her semifinal effort (so far) at the Doha Premier 5 tournament this week with temporary partner Jelena Ostapenko current No. 11 Gabriela Dabrowski will earn that rare distinction Monday.
